If I Had Known

Mary Carolyn Davies

If I had known what trouble you were bearing;
What griefs were in the silence of your face;
I would have been more gentle and more caring,
And tried to give you gladness for a space.
I would have brought more warmth into the place,
If I had known.

If I had known what thoughts despairing drew you;
(Why do we never try to understand?)
I would have lent a little friendship to you,
And slipped my hand within your hand,
And made your stay more pleasant in the land,
If I had known.

#under1000skies Our artist-pack supplies came in today! We have enough for six packs. Each pack includes pens, an all-weather notebook, a disposable camera and a waterproof bag (shown behind). Each (winter) pack also includes one warm scarf and one pair of gloves. Three of these packs are going to our Denver volunteer @wilddreamwalks two to our Delaware team @jazztizz and the other one to our California volunteer @big_manuel  These photos will be returned to us to be developed scanned and featured on our “Under1000Skies” @wordpressdotcom site along with poetry, musings, stories or anything else the artists care to write. We began Under1000skies as a way for homeless artists to connect with each other and form bonds of mutual respect, compassion and deep understanding from shared life experiences. Our Second Gallery #exhibition will be up this weekend. #grateful #heartsong #homeless #artists #photographers #lightfilledgems Special thanks to @cntryboyluv @#and @wilddreamwalks for photography #contributions. We are always looking for new #photos and #art to feature on our site. You always retain full rights. See our “about” page for more info. Thank you you so much for helping us distribute these packs! Thanks also to everyone for your support and for helping to spread the word about “Under1000Skies”. 😊@tizzlovesrowdy
